We only stayed one night at this charming and beautifully decorated Riad, but we hope to go back again. The service was impeccable and personal, breakfast was fresh and on the terrace, and requests were met and exceeded. Thank you to the attentive staff and congratulations to the owners for a fantastic job of restoration.

This Riad felt almost unreal with the antique furniture and decorations. We had the rooms on the second floor with window in the bedroom looking into the insight of the Riad. It was very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast on the roof terrace was freshly made and probably the best we had during our trip to Marocco. It is a very... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our tripadvisor's page. We are delighted that you enjoyed the authenticity of our house built in the early 19th century, and very different of a modern hotel. On behalf of the team we thank you and we hope to welcome you again. More

We spent 3 nights at this riad, a beautiful old building in the heart of the medina. Rabat's medina is very much a place for locals rather than tourists, which was a nice change from Marrakech. The riad was easy enough to find with the directions emailed to us, and it was a pleasure to wander around the medina without... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during our recent visit to Rabat. We had a very warm welcome and some delicious mint tea. Our room was on the first floor and very well decorated with traditional Moroccan furnishings and beautiful tiles. This was by far the most atmospheric riad that we stayed during our trip. Breakfast was on the terrace... More

We spend here just one night but was an amazing. Lovely welcoming (tea and biscuits). Beautiful and clean rooms, and delicious breakfast on the roof. Nice service and decor is typical moroccan. Staff was very helpful ( we get the map of medina with recommendations for dinner and venues). Riad is located in the heart of the medina, but it... More

This was my favorite Riad that we stayed in on our trip across Morocco as the room that we stayed in was huge, tall and beautifully decorated. The staff were so helpful, when we arrived, we got lost in the Medina so our host, Shakira, came out and found us!!

If you like to get close to the local way of life this is the place for you. In the heart of the old medina this renovated riad is spacious and comfortable. It is very close to where the locals shop, eat, pray and hang out - including the souk, the local markets and the kasbah. There are also tiny... More

My husband, 11 year old son, and I spent one month in Morocco in December 2014. Riad Marhaba was one of our first stops. Truly “welcoming”, our host Amine made us feel like home and introduced us to local culture and food. Beautiful and clean rooms, and delicious breakfast. We highly recommend this riad.
